I got so excited at having finally gotten the posting to work, I decided to send a second one! If anyone has any suggestions as to backgrounds in still lifes (I either have none, or one that is too busy!), it would be much appreciated! Thanks!

I had taken a watercolor class a couple of years ago. During the class I had said to the instructor who was great, that I have trouble with the backgrounds. She said "Who doesn't" and then gave some suggestions. It made me feel better knowing that everyone has the same problem with them.

I try to fill my areas around objects with their shadows, high-lights, perhaps drapery, and tables. It just depends on what will work and what won't for each painting.

I wouldn't change a thing.
I like it just the way it is and the title is great. :)

fink - thanks for the suggestions. It helps to know that I am not the only one having this problem. I'll keep on plugging away!

leaflin - thanks for the thumbs up, and i'm glad you liked the title! They just kind of looked like buddies, so I thought it might fit!
